There are a few things you need to know in order to properly configure the MAXXYZ Console for it to work properly with ESP Vision.

This discussion is valid for the following configurations:

MAXXYZ Console to Vision 3.0 MAC
MAXXYZ Console to Vision 2.3 PC


CONFIGURE THE NETWORK:
To begin, make sure that the IP addresses assigned to the 2 computers are on the same subnet. What this means, is that you must establish a valid TCP/IP connection between the 2 computers for Artnet to work. Here is a sample that will work:

MAXXYZ Console:
IP Address: 2.186.2.66
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0

ESP Vision machine:
IP Address: 2.186.2.99
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0

It is very important that the Console and Vision machine both be on the same IP subnet AND the Subnet Mask MUST BE 255.0.0.0. Any other value in the Subnet Mask will cause the connection to be intermittent and fail.
